Interesting bird this hornbill. Have seen hundreds of them during my trips in Africa.
The sharpness is impressing and the yellow of the bill is nice.

This is an excellent picture (and dedication to TN-members). You have been very active (posts and critiques/comments) during your one year membership. You allways write good, informative notes to your posts (which not many do any more and this will due time transform this wonderfull site to a non interesting gallery).
This capture is very special due to the very good sharpness/dof showing a lot of details in the plumage and a well blurred background to set the bird off very nicely. The colours are stunning - I like the darkness in the picture. The handling of light very good and the composition is perfect.
All over a very pleasant picture to look at - I think it would be fantastic as XXL and framed on a wall.

Beautifull shot Manyee!
Focus and exposure couldn't be better. Shallow DOF is great to isolate your subject. And sideview of his head help to maintain sharp focus all over.
Excellent work and TFS.

Well who would have thought you could get a picture like that at the Happy Hollow Zoo? The only times I was there I was trying to to keep track of 30 kids and could not even tell you what animals they have there.
Congratulations on your TN anniversary! With 6877 points you have not been sitting on your hands! This is a beautiful image. Well done....again!
